Sad to say that scammers are trying all sorts of tricks at the moment.  

In particular, anyone asking for payment for COVID test kits or TV Licences is not genuine and HMRC are not trying to send you refund.

Please be especially careful with unsolicited emails and phone calls.  Do not give out any personal information, no matter how convincing the caller seems. If in doubt, get advice before doing anything.

A ‘Zoom’ talk by Eddie Smallwood

‘A lovely scene in Victorian times, with the family gathered around the Christmas tree.’

“Hear how the festive period is not what it was; how customs date back thousands of years or are wrong”

We will also be entertained by readings from members of the Writing for Pleasure Group to add to the Christmas theme
